GRANDSLAM! – Election Wins On All 4 Gay Marriage Ballot Questions In WA, MD, ME, and MN!

Due to some very aggressive campaigning (finally) and MN Vikings Straight ally Chris Kluwe ALL 4 ballot measures that appeared on ballots across the Unites States passed in our favor yesterday breaking a losing streak second only to that of the Cincinnati Bengals.

In the toughest ballot race last night Minnesota voters said “NO” to bigotry and gave a huge “FUCK YOU” to NOM, the Catholic Church, and  the Knights of Columbus, when the proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage was surprisingly defeated.

Said Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak told hundreds of amendment opponents gathered at the RiverCentre in St. Paul late Tuesday night. “You understood compassion. This wound up being one of the most inspirational things that’s ever happened in Minnesota. Minnesota is going to be the state that’s going to show the country exactly what Minnesota values are all about.”

In Maryland where final tally is not yet in and the margin remains slim, many major LGBT rights organizations and news organizations  are claiming victory for gay marriage in Maryland. Where MD voters approved Question 6, the Civil Marriage Protection Act, paving the way for gay and lesbian couples to receive a marriage license beginning in January.

In Maine the  Portland Press-Herald is calling  its gay marriage ballot question a win and Maine today became the first state to approve the freedom to marry for same-sex couples through a majority vote on a ballot measure. Maine is expected to begin issuing marriage licenses in mid-December.

And last but not least in Washington State, Seattle’s Capitol Hill turned into a street party Tuesday night as voters celebrated the state’s approval of gay marriage.  Governor Chris Gregoire signed to law in February of this year but a ballot question was submitted to public referendum by opponents where it was beaten last night.

THIS IS GAY HISTORY IN THE MAKING!

Congratulations to all and a thank you to all who worked so hard on these ballot initiatives.

 

Blast from The Past! – Tom Snyder’s Tomorrow Show Segment On "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and the 8th Street Playhouse NYC – 1979 (Video)

In a distance galaxy, far far away…….

Well actually it was 1979 in NYC’s Greenwich Village at the 8th Street Playhouse.  Tom Snyder’s “The Tomorrow Show” did a segment on The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the 8th Street Floorshow.  And I was there.  Not only was I there I was a member of the floorshow. (I told you I was old)

So when you watch this report.  (And yes the quality is not that great but it IS from 1979 after all) and you hit the 5 Minute and 21 second mark and wonder who that cute 17 year old twink is playing Eddie and being interveiwd.

Well thats me.  (Please be gentle)

My kingdom for a time machine…..
